Publisher's Summary

Iolanthe Tennyson has had a very bad year—due in part to the very bad men in her life. So she’s accepted her cousin’s invitation to spend the summer in Austria to indulge her photography hobby. Rumors of a haunted forest there draw Iolanthe into the dark woods—and into the 18th century....
Nikola Czerny is a cursed man, forced by his half brothers to live forever as a Dark One. But his miserable existence takes an intriguing turn when a strange, babbling woman is thrown in his path. Iolanthe claims to know Nikola’s daughter—300 years in the future. She also knows what fate—in the form of his murderous half brothers—has in store for him. If only she knew the consequences of changing the past to save one good, impossibly sexy vampire....

More of a Carry On Vamp than Interview With A Vamp

You would think, looking at the cover and reading the summary of the book, that this is going to be the usual 'hot 'n heavy' vamp tale - but you'd be sooo wrong.

It's not a dark tale but it is a well written fun filled plot about timetravel with curses, ghosts, double-crossing, lies, great entertaining characters, lots of humour and funny situations. The couple often talk to each other mind to mind with quick witted quips usually about sex but if you took out the mild sex talk and innuendos which occasionally led to the real thing (usually quick and not very descriptive) then this could have been a YA listen.

I had, in a moment of madness or during a sale, downloaded all her Dark Ones books and I've started with this one not realising it's actually book 10 but it could have been a stand alone listen and I will, in time, listen to the rest but more as a break from my normal books as I like the dark, brooding mysterious vamps like the infamous BDBrotherhood.

Worth a credit? Lots of fun, a light listen and very entertaining so Yes, but if I hadn't already of downloaded the rest then I wouldn't continue with the series - not because their bad books or badly written - but because their just a bit too 'light' for me.

Between the characters and the narration, this was one of the most annoying books I have listened to. The book was written in a way that attempted to be "quirky", but it was overkill. Instead of being entertaining, the quirkiness made the characters come across as imbeciles. I couldn't connect with either of the main characters. There was supposed to be this steamy attraction between the two, but it felt really forced and didn't pull me into the romantic connection. I don't think it was a "bad" book, just not my cup of tea.

The narration didn't help at all. The main female character was performed ok, but the guy's voice grated on my nerves the whole time, as did some of the supporting characters.

I probably won't be buying another book in this series, but I might give the narrator a second chance.
